AS part of Winsham Primary School's learning and reflection around the importance of being a 'global neighbour', the children undertook a sponsored walk to raise money for Tearfund.

They set off from school and walked to Forde Abbey, where the owners allowed them to rest, recover and have a snack before setting back off to school.

The pupils' ages ranged from four to 11, but there were no complaints of tired legs, no one struggled and everyone completed the challenge with smiles.

At Forde Abbey, a member of the public was so impressed by the children's behaviour and the fact that they had wanted to raise money, that they were given an extra donation to add to the funds they had raised. The grand total reached £450.

The pupils also took part in Wallace and Gromit's Wrong Trousers Day.

A KS2 pupil is currently undergoing treatment for a brain tumour and the children all wanted to show their appreciation for the care she is being given at Bristol Hospital.

There were trousers with pineapples on, colourful sportswear and Batman PJs to name but a few. They raised £50.

Leo from Winsham said the Tearfund walk "was quite a lot of walking but it was worth it".

Emma Johns, head of school, said: "Our values at Winsham are important to us and run through all we do.

"We promote the value of community and living well together, both at a local level as well as with our global neighbours.

"These fundraising activities, chosen by the children, reflect this focus."
